Tempe is being recognized as one of the most eco-friendly cities in the nation to rent an apartment, according to Apartment Guide.
Tempe came in at No. 6 on the “Greenest Cities in The U.S. For Renters” list, which is based on the rankings of communities that advertised green amenities like solar panels, EV charging stations, or smart thermostats.
Officials at the ranking site say they divide the number by the total count of properties in any given city and Tempe came in at 23.3% slating them in the top 10 nationally.
Apartment Guide Managing Editor, Brian Carberry, who put together the report believes the new trend of eco-friendly living is at the top of the list for potential renters.
